My chihuahua and I play hide and seek 

with warm spots

trying to find where that old rascal


is hiding 

in this old house,

the heater cheers us along

while the teapot whistles

and soup simmers

me- in the kitchen 

Lilly now snuggling on a pillow under our coffee table 

filling the chilly autumn evening 

with choruses of doggy breath

while i exhale along 

so Ollie Ollie oxen free

Steam has found us

and now we need to go find 

our spoons,

full of gratitude

for our every day Thanksgiving supper
